I learned that you should be carefull of what you keep in what pocket.

While getting off my bike yesterday, I was distracted for a fraction of a second, with the result that I caught my foot on the seat and did a nose plant.

No big deal in itself but I felt a stabbing pain as I hit the ground, upon inspection it was just a pen I had in my chest pocket, it dug right in to my chest, even broke the skin.

Can you imagine the harm it could of done in a highspeed get off ? So from now on I'm going to be carefull of what I put in each pocket. Pointy things such as pens/keys/tools or whatever are preferably going in the saddlebags.

"Handgun positioning is worthy of some thought. Inside front waistband will keep it from showing when leaned forward...."

Not to mention having the potential of giving you a sex change in the event of an AD. :?
HK P7, AD is highly unlikely(squeeze cocker). Also, holster shields the trigger from unintentional manipulation. Further, muzzle position when carried is low enough to be a danger to my thigh, but not THOSE.
HK maybe... but not my Colt 1991-A1 (winter wear) or Colt Mustang .380 (summer wear)... :lol: Actually they have always been very reliable with the safeties, but it (1991-A1) is a little too large for a frontal waistband carry. Bianchi on the right hip. :)
